Daniel B. Heist

Daniel B. Heist, for the past thirty years a resident of Allentown, died of heart trouble at 5 a.m., yesterday at his home, 1327 Turner street, after being ill for a week. He was in his sixty-fifth year.

He received his early education in the public schools near his home, and when he was a young man he went to Topton, where he learned the shoemaker's trade. He was a shoe merchant there for a number of years after learning his trade, and he continued there until about thirty years ago, when he decided to move to Allentown.

Mr. Heist was a member of the P. O. S. of A. at Topton, and also of Jordan Council, No. 746, F. P. A., the latter two being of Allentown. He was a faithful member of Christ Lutheran church.

His only survivor is his widow, Ida (nee Ohl). He was the last surviving member of his family, eight brothers and sisters having preceded him in death.
